You will also need to remove the aux belt idler. Then order a belt for the same car WITHOUT A/C. This can be a bit of a nightmare though, as even cars the same age and spec often have different belts due to things like different alternator pulley diameters; some trial and error may be involved!

Some 1.8 156's came without aircon.

You could try and source a belt for one of those. Also as Foxtrotoscar says you need to remove the fixed tensioner (idler) pulley.

A 145/146 non aircon belt may also fit but some of them have less grooves than the ones fitted to the 156

as fan belts are mostly generic and the same width, you could just go to a motor factors and specity the length of belt you need. It may involve geting the wife's/gf'd best fabric tape measure out and wrapping it around the pulleys in the intended path to arrive at the desired length. Don't forget to take into account the difference the tensioner makes.
